Three Seminars Offered This Spring!

Create International Taiwan and the School of Cartooning and Animation for Missions are excited to announce that six weeks of the 2017 SoCAM will be open for shorter seminars! These seminars are open to any Christian who wants to use their art skills and talents to reach the nations with the good news of Jesus Christ.


No previous training is required, although a background in art would be helpful. All materials will be provided, but students must bring their own laptop computers for the Digital Graphics and Digital 2D Animation seminars. A DTS (Discipleship Training School) is not required to enroll in any of the seminars.


Classes will be held in the mornings, Monday through Friday (9:00 AM - 12:30 PM). Some afternoon/evening activities may also be encouraged.
